about

The Color of the Year EP is a celebration of Pantone's 2014 color of the year, radiant orchid (18-3224). Each song aims to explore a unique perspective on how color appears in our life—and how it doesn't.

This is Cassette Fighter's first release with the GTB collective.

Track Name: The Color of the Year (feat. Infinitefreefall)
Beaming bright
And resplendent
It's the color of the year
Make way for
Radiant orchid
That's the color of the year

Was there a committee?
Did they send out ballots?
That healthy shade of purple
Warms my cold heart

Gleaming fair
And effulgent
It's the color of the year
Emerald green
Has been displaced as
The true color of the year

Why must Pantone play god
With our color palette?
Since when did they have a
Monopoly?

Lustrous fine
And exciting
It's the color of the year
Everyone is in awe of the
Color of 2014

Who can resist its charms?
It is so inviting
I am possessed by the
Beauty of the
Color of the year
Track Name: Dolphonic
What's the difference between red and green?
Do the sounds they make ever agree?
Colorblindness is essentially innocuous
But how can I tell if the light my eyes perceive
Even exists?

Blue pelagic waves roll over my skin
Senses working overtime again
A change of pitch is welcome any day
But how can I tell if the light my eyes perceive
Even exists?

Anesthesia sets in much too quick
Tones and hues cannot afflict
Anything but the pain of absence
But now I can see that the light my eyes perceive
Doesn't exist
Track Name: CMY2K (feat. everets)
There are more bodies in California than i could count in a lifetime
There are more colors than shapes to fill and more days than night times
Rods and cones may seem like science but there's no truth in their alliance

Everything you've ever seen is make-believe
And everything you've ever been is the new chromaphilosophy
It's going to
Change the world
And shoot the moon
Create another dark, another day
And you will get there soon

There are more waves in the pacific ocean than i could ever take
There are more hearts in lovers' minds than i could ever break
Veins and lungs may seem like fun but when you have to live for everyone

You'll know that
Everything you've ever seen is make-believe
And everything you've ever been is the new chromaphilosophy
It's going to
Change the world
And shoot the moon
Create another dark, another day
And you will get there soon
Without me
